It’s Friday and we’ve just discovered the cutest kitten to ever exist and it wears custom crochet outfits, making the story totally relevant to the fashion world. In short: best day ever.
Best of all, Wasabi-chan is more than just a cute cat on Instagram. She has a story.
The kitten was rescued on June 2 after being attacked by a crow, suffering a fractured upper jaw and split tongue. The injuries required her to be fed through a tube, which she would try to get out of her mouth, being a cat and all. So, her new owner tried the only conceivable solution: crochet-ing ridiculously cute outfits for her to wear, one of which looks like a little mushroom!
The outfits were also functional in keeping Wasabi-chan’s paws away from the tube, allowing her to grow up to become a healthy, adorable internet sensation.
As far as we know, the designer’s wares are not yet available on Etsy (though, some other cat clothes are).
Click through to see some of the most aww-inducing photos of Wasabi Chan, and then please tell me the best places to go to find rescuable baby kittens. Thank you.
